Cliffhangers

Cliffhangers.  Like you…I have mixed feelings about cliffhangers.  Sure.  They are exciting. They get your blood pumping.  They can even overwhelm you.  But they are also, well…annoying.

When your favorite show ends the season with your jaw on the floor going “but…” “wait…”  “how?”  “how did he?!?!”  “How is she!?!?”  “I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL SEPTEMBER?!?!?!?!?”

Like I said…they can be annoying.

This experience is feeling more and more like a movie.  No surprise there.  Travis’ life does seem to play out like a movie.  How many of you feel like the waiting for the CA19-9 every two weeks is kind of like a…cliffhanger?

And so…another two weeks has passed.  And the results are in.  Like a season premiere.  Will it be what we hoped for?  Will it be a let down?

Let’s let you decide….

  • 05/15 – 161,000
  • 05/29 – 135,000
  • 06/12 – 57,000
  • 06/26 – 19,500

Today?

8,800.

Another 55% decrease.  A 95% decrease overall.

A cliffhanger well worth the wait.

Some of you have said the last video was also a…cliffhanger.

“When’s the next segment?”  “Why haven’t you guys updated the blog!?!?”  “FINISH THE SERIES!!!!”

We actually didn’t mean to leave you with a cliffhanger.  We had every intention of posting within a day or two.

But we have been busy.

I don’t mean “normal life” busy.  All of us have that.  I mean

we-got-something-in-the-works-busy.

Something exciting.  A silver lining in this gloomy cloud of Travis’ cholangio.  Something BIG.  Bigger than any of us.

But.  We aren’t ready to reveal it yet.  So while we are ready to reveal the follow up to the last video. Regarding our plans…our work…our BIG thing…we just have to leave you with…

a cliffhanger.

    Travis this is my prayer for you this morning:

    Father, You guide us through the many dangers, toils, and snares that we face while journeying here below. In these major challenges we desire to give You glory in what we say, what we do and in the way we process our emotions as we prayerfully respond to the challenges set before us. We want to be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer as we overcome life’s struggles. We find healing for our soul when we rely on You, our tender and loving Father, who heals our broken heart, binds up our wounds and restore health to our ill bodies. You are ever faithful and ever interceding for us, your children. And we thank You for it. Thank you for allowing Travis, Carrie and I to meet, for he is a living testimony that You are still in the healing business. May Your blessings of healing and strength continues to work in his life. In the name of Jesus. Amen.

    Travis, you are truly a blessing in my life.
